    Fascinating and unresolved

    Fascinating story, but very controversial, because there are so many competing theories about what actually happened. Did Nasser's son-in-law actually betray his country before the Yom Kippour war, in 1973? Was he a double agent, working in fact for president Sadat? Was he just acting out of hubris, of greed, of genuine anger, of true patriotism? So many possibilities. What's great about Mr. Bar-Joseph's book is that he explores many of these possibilities and weighs in with his opinion about most of them. Still, it's up to the reader to decide whether to agree with him or not. And the fascination lies in observing the workings of all the intelligence and counter-intelligence organizations, the political spheres, the social strata and the armies, both in Israel and Egypt. Definitely worth reading if you're at all interested in the Middle East and its permanent quagmire.
